Having won the United States and Australian Opens, the 21-year-old Japanese is on a mission to become the first woman to win three Grand Slams on the trot since her idol Serena Williams in 2015.
Williams, though, was stunned by fellow American Sofia Kenin and Osaka's 16-match winning streak in Grand Slam tournaments came to an end in straight sets at the hands of Katerina Siniakova on the red Paris clay.
Yet Barty, who improved her season record to 26-5, is prepared to be tested against No.35-ranked Kenin.
"I was happy to close it out in two sets. I don't really like playing out points when I practice", she said.
Williams surely remains a top figure surrounding women's tennis, but the once untouchable powerhouse now finds herself blazing down a bumpy road. It is her first Grand Slam quarterfinal.
Barty, an Australian who interrupted her tennis career for almost two years after the 2014 U.S. Open to play cricket, is really thriving now. "I'm here again. I'm feeling good, and I have expectations for myself to play good tennis".
Up next, the No.5 seeds will take on some familiar faces in the No.2 seeded team of Timea Babos and Kristina Mladenovic, in a rematch of January's Australian Open final.
"I'm just pretty far away, but the optimistic part is I haven't been able to be on the court as much as I would have", she said, adding that she may even take a wildcard into a pre-Wimbledon event.
- Dubbed by some as the "battle of big hair", Osaka hopes for a more comfortable outing against number 42 Siniakova, the world's top ranked doubles player who is in the last 32 in Paris for the third time. Osaka struggled to settle in the second set, going down a double break with a double fault.
Zverev faces Monte Carlo Masters victor Fabio Fognini, the ninth seed; Thiem's next opponent is French 14 seed and ex-semifinalist Gael Monfils, and eighth-seeded former U.S. Open champion Juan Martin del Potro also made the last 16; just as women's eighth seed Ash Barty and No. 14 Madison Keys.
Also, defending champion Simona Halep routed 18-year-old Iga Swiatek 6-1, 6-0 in 45 minutes. "All I know is, she was not ready and it was obvious, I think".
"I'd like to think she's got a very good chance", she said.
Keys and Barty have faced each other just twice, with each player earning a victory.
First win over a World No.1. "But I can't turn time".
"I would love to forget that match at the French Open", said Barty.
In other third-round women's singles action on Saturday, Romanian world No. 3 and defending French Open champion Simona Halep strolled past Ukraine's Lesia Tsurenko 6-2, 6-1 to set up a fourth-round match against Polish teenage sensation Iga Swiatek, who rallied from a awful start to defeat Puerto Rico's Monica Puig 0-6, 6-3, 6-3.
